Award of Seven On-Call Contracts for Engineering Support Services (F19-198)

Approval is requested to award seven on-call contracts to provide on-call engineering support services for the Department of Public Works for an initial three-year period to the following firms: Advanced Design Consultants in the amount of $200,000, CSW/Stuber-Stroeh Engineering Group, Inc. in the amount of $500,000, Kimley-Horn and Associates in the amount of $200,000, Salas O'Brien in the amount of $200,000, SANDIS in the amount of $500,000, Schaaf & Wheeler in the amount of $500,000, and TJKM Transportation Consultants in the amount of $200,000. Approval is also requested to authorize the City Manager to increase the not-to-exceed amounts and to extend the contracts, for up to two additional years, with both actions subject to available budgeted funding.

Pursuant to Chapter 2.08 of the Sunnyvale Municipal Code, contracts for this type of service are awarded pursuant to a Request for Proposals (RFP) best value process, unless otherwise exempt from the competitive bidding process. Additionally, City Council approval is required for the procurement of goods and/or services exceeding $100,000 in any one transaction.

The action being considered does not constitute a "project" within the meaning of the California Environmental Quality Act ("CEQA") pursuant to CEQA Guidelines section 15378(b) as it has no potential for resulting in either a direct physical change in the environment, or a reasonably foreseeable indirect physical change in the environment.

Each year, a number of City capital improvement projects are scheduled to begin. Staff regularly uses on-call contracts with engineering consulting firms as an opportunity to short-list and provide a streamlined process for selecting consultants to support the implementation of projects in a timely manner.
